    I’m a bit late to this Model 94 party, just bought one today. I had a hand-me-down 94 from Gramps years ago. I went in the military, left it with a relative & it disappeared. There are two suspect relatives, but they’ve erased the memory from their mind.

    Anyway, the gun today is a 1950 manufacture Mod 94 Winchester, in 32 SPCL. It’s not mint, but not to far behind, Wood is great, just minor dings here & there. Now I’m doing some research on loads, those Hornady FTX Bullets & loads get good reviews.

    This 94 may go to a son who’s into older guns with history.

    In the spirit of this wonderful old rifle and cartridge, an excerpt from Frank Marshall:

    While I disagree that rifles with scopes of wonderful power, are useful for more than bird gazing and moon watching; this is still a good read.

    Practical skill always outperforms fancy equipment.

    Practical skill coped with fancy equipment is just plain fun! :)

    Oh there's a place for scopes alright; it just ain't on a 94 Winchester.

    The 94 is probably the most famous/used deer rifle here in Tennessee. Almost every Hunter I know here has at least one.
